Electronic Files

Electronic files are accelerating administrative processes, are supporting media-consistent workflows and are creating consistent electronic services.

The eFile basic package

Materna's eFiles basic package is an innovative and flexible solution for professional electronic file management and process handling.

Electronic file management

With the basic eFile package, we support the simple changeover to electronic file management.

  • The eFiles basic package offers full integration with Microsoft Office and Microsoft SharePoint. This means you can process files and processes without media discontinuity, avoid redundancies and optimize procedures – and all of this from the Microsoft working environment you are accustomed to.
  • You benefit from barrier-free Office use. The presentation of the user interface of the eFiles basic package is low-barrier and is based on optimized workplace design in line with BITV 2.0 / WCAG 2.0.
  • Electronic files are mapped under Microsoft SharePoint. In addition to file management, this enables optimized collaboration and process handling within the public authority. This makes it possible to map formal as well as informal documentation.

We cooperate with the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS and demonstrate application scenarios in the e-government laboratory of the research partner in Berlin.
